MERRIGONGX presents Going Home – Development Showing by Kirli Saunders.
Inspired by Kirli Saunders’ own reconnection Country and Community, Going Home explores the intersection of the removal of four siblings taken from their families in 1970’s and the homecoming of those siblings, to Country in present day.
Weaving fiction with truth, poetry with prose and language with land, this work offers solace to those similarly disconnected and celebrates the strength, survival and warmth of First Nations communities. It explores the intergenerational impacts of our shared history and confronts what we leave behind when we are forced to go, and prompts us to think about what lies ahead.
